Removing shower base from basement


I have an old shower stall in the basement, the walls which were rusted and I removed. The base has a crack and I'd like to replace it. It appears to be glued onto the foundation below (which is raised), and the outgoing pipe looks like cast iron? Is there any way to remove the base without breaking up the mortar and redoing the drainage pipes?

Re: Removing shower base from basement

You will want to replace the pipe and P-trap any way--its old and corroded--

That is not as big a job as many think---and well within the realm of DIY--

So--get out your BIG hammer--stuff a rag into the pipe--and crack that old base out of there---
